Vintage Lover’s Dream Property


Stepping through the quaint front gate, then through the ornate front door of this federation style home will transcend you swiftly back in time. Nestled on a large private block with water views, this gorgeous home boasts many traditional features of the 1930s. Revived original timber floorboards feature throughout, as does the ornate fretwork and decorative plasterwork and timber blinds. The owners have a heartfelt appreciation for vintage and shabby chic style and have cherished and maintained certain aspects of the property accordingly.

Originally a single storey two bedroom cottage, it has been renovated and extended over the years and the transition is seamless. With the inclusions of an inviting claw foot bath tub, high ceilings, lovely French doors, open wooden staircase, traditional lead lighting, that bygone era still lives on. But with that history and character, comes features of a more modern era too. Stainless steel appliances adorn the compact kitchen with its open servery to the loungeroom and option for a butlers pantry or study nook. Heating and cooling is managed by the option of an air conditioner, ceiling fans or gas heating in winter. The bedrooms are generous with built in robes in two and a lovely bay window, walk in robe and ensuite in the main. With two living areas and a spacious dining area this home simply flows and natural light is in abundance.

This property is ideal for those with an admiration for older style properties. Kids will have plenty of room to play in the yard and create memories in the cubbyhouse whilst others will enjoy the outdoor undercover BBQ nook and inground Pebblecrete salt and chlorine pool with spa jets. The garage has a tandem layout with potential with council approval, to become an office, granny flat, teenagers retreat or art studio perhaps. Conveniently located near the foreshore of Lake Macquarie, Toronto and Glendale shopping precincts, Warners Bay cafes and restaurants and 30minutes to Newcastle CBD.
